Less is More - Week 23 - Something with Legs...........

This week's challenge over at Less is More is a one layer card and something with legs!!!!  Hmmmmmmm!!

I decided to use the lovely basque and feminine set from Clarity Stamps.  To start I made up an A5 card from white pearlised card and ran it through my Joy Trouvaille and embossed the smallest die from my Go Kreate XXL Frilly No 5 frames.  I then inked up the basque stamp and put some Angelina Fibre Cobalt Sparkles on top, placed a piece of baking parchment over and then ironed.  I then cut out around the image and threaded through some blue cord for the lacing.  The sentiment feminine was inked with Distress Ink Faded Jeans and stamped once one way, then I turned the card around and stamped it again to get the two legs.  I then added the basque using Pinflair Glue Gel.  The addition of some blue gems finished the card.

Thanks for dropping by.

  1. This is gorgeous - like the embossing on the main card, also the angelina is effective with this stamp
